Emily Skye Workout Routine

The internationally known Gold Coast-based Aussie fitness expert Emily Skye focuses on overall wellness and body positivity, which she employs to make people feel comfortable in their skin, as well as increase their self-confidence. A decade ago, this ex-model turned fitness trainer weighed just 47 kilos, was unhealthy and depressed, and was underweight.

We take a look at how this beautiful trainer built her shredded abs, sculpted legs, and enviable buttocks.

In an interview, Emily admitted she was unhappily satisfied with her life as a model and that nothing she tried seemed to bring her happiness. The fact that she was starving herself of nutrients was due to her constant effort to be thin. As a result of Emily’s poor eating habits and excessive cardio workouts, she suffered from depression and was out of shape. Having met her boyfriend, Declan Redmond, however, she changed her perspective.

A better diet and training regime helped her live a more fit, healthy, and active life. The Australian fitness model now emphasizes strength training, lifting heavy weights, and performing high-intensity interval training (HIIT). As a result of Emily’s strict exercise schedule, she now weighs 13kg more because she has gained muscle mass.

Emily Skye

That was all about the workout routine that she follows. Besides this, she also has a bunch of tips and tricks that she does to stay quite consistent with her workout schedule. Take a look ahead!

Emily Skye Workout Tips and Tricks

Emily Skye believes that one can easily get to their goal by defining them and believing in oneself. Emily Skye is quite strong when it comes to her mind. Thus she follows the tips that are given below so that she could stay quite consistent with her workouts. Read below to know all about it!!

Define Your Goal

Investing time and effort in knowing what you want and why can be a big step toward achieving that goal, says Skye.

You Are Worth It

Despite her struggles with self-esteem and feeling unworthy, Skye still felt unworthy. To help people succeed, she helps them be healthy, and that is often the first step to believing in themselves and achieving what they are passionate about.

Make Time to Celebrate

In an interview, Skye says that celebrating even the smallest victories can create a positive attitude, and it can also make you feel like you’ll never succeed if you keep working without recognition.

Manageable Dose

A typical week for Skye includes four workout sessions. She works out at the gym for anywhere from a quick 30-minute workout to an hour and a half.

Strength Training Rules

Skye prefers lifting weights as his preferred exercise. Skye takes pride in maintaining proper form while lifting heavyweights.

Not Hot for Cardio

As far as cardio is concerned, Skye isn’t big on it. It is not uncommon for her to do some high-intensity kettlebell swings or snatches.

Emily Skye

Solid Seven

While she is busy right now with babies, Skye tries to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.

Sharing Is Caring

In a candid interview, Skye says that healing her diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles), as well as her pelvic floor muscles, will take time. It is all too common for moms to concern themselves only with how things appear on the outside, and forget about the important internal work that is still being done.

Not Just the Baby Blues

In the months following her first child’s birth, Skye struggled with postpartum depression (PPD), and she was very open about her struggle to get back on track.

Emily Skye

Keep On Going

As far as Skye is concerned, she will continue to increase the number of people she reaches and make a positive impact on their lives.

In this section, we learned some of the tips that she gives away so that she could get 100 percent out of her workouts routines. In the next one, we will learn about her diet plan that gives her all the strength needed.

Emily Skye Diet Plan

Throughout Skye’s life, he has engaged in intermittent fasting. As a result, she only consumes food at certain times of the day and fasts the rest of the time. Despite not following a particular diet, she regards eating clean as an important aspect of health. She avoids keeping junk food in her house so she doesn’t give in to temptation. There are few ingredients in her favorite foods such as grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, and fresh vegetables. It’s always ideal for her to eat organic foods. According to her, she eats intuitively, choosing foods according to how they make her feel. Foods with a lot of carbs don’t sit well with her. Whenever a photoshoot is on the schedule, she is strict with diet, but otherwise, she has a more relaxed approach and enjoys indulgence occasionally.

Towards Emily’s philosophy of eating is clean eating, which means feeding her body adequate amounts of nutrients. It is not a vegan diet or paleo eating plan that she follows, but one that emphasizes whole foods such as dark leafy greens, lean meat, sweet potatoes, nuts, seeds, and brown rice. The diet does not include processed food or foods with high sugar or carb content. Foods like avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, salmon, nuts, and seeds provide her with a small amount of fat. Good fat, according to Emily, aids in the development of new cells and promotes the proper functioning of the brain.

Her morning will begin with an egg, spinach, and halloumi wrap in order to awaken her body.

‘I usually aim to include protein at breakfast, like eggs and dairy, which also have a range of important minerals. A savory breakfast means I can throw in some vegetables, plus wholegrain carbs for slow-release energy,‘ she narrated to NW magazine.

In the afternoon she has a nutritious salad of kale, sweet potatoes, avocados, and tuna for lunch.

Her lunch is often already prepared before she leaves so she isn’t scrambling for it at the last minute. At the same time, she tries to take care of Mia’s needs simultaneously.

‘A salad or noodle bowl is a quick lunch option. I try to include fish a few times a week for lean protein and important omega-3 fats. I add some pumpkin and sesame seeds for extra minerals, protein, and healthy fats,’ she appended.

Emily occasionally eats snacks, which are normally berried yogurt or apple with a smoothie. In order to make sure she gets enough minerals during the day, she includes a treat with a low GI value like nut butter.

Occasionally she fits in a workout at midnight when she eats a beef, lime, and coriander fajita bowl for dinner in order to satiate her hunger until the following day.

Emily Skye

‘A red meat meal is a great way to increase iron intake. You don’t need a huge serving of meat, so my fajita bowl is the perfect way to get some protein, plus plenty of vegetables and high-nutrient quinoa,’ she stated.

Her post-baby exercise plan has been revealed previously by the 32-year-old Gold Coast mum.

‘Some people might think my progress is due to my genetics or because of breastfeeding but I can tell you it’s got a LOT to do with hard work and consistency,‘ Emily composed on an Instagram.

All those midnight workouts I did after Mia fell asleep and eating healthy meals from my FIT Program are getting me great results,’ she continued.

‘I knew it wasn’t going to be easy and I’d have to work for it so that’s what I’m doing. I’m very proud of what I’ve done so far! I’m getting stronger and leaner every day and I’m in a good mood most of the time hehe (bonus)!

‘When I’m happy Mia seems happier too. I’m so excited to be back into lifting heavy weights – time to build some muscle back!’

Emily Skye Diet Tips

Fitness star Emily Skye has been known for her washboard abs among other things. This time, she shares the methods she uses to maintain her Instagram-famous midsection. According to her new People interview, Skye revealed her eating and workout strategies. If you are interested in getting a more defined stomach, or simply want ways to maximize your gym sessions or learn to eat healthily, her advice is solid and practical.

Emily Skye

There are some important things you need to know about Skye’s advice before digging into the details. The process of getting toned abs, much less a six-pack, can be incredibly difficult. It’s okay because, even if you have visible stomach muscles, you’re still attractive, fit, and healthy. As a common goal for the New Year (especially when it comes to New Year’s resolutions), getting a toned midsection is something to strive for. But if it makes you feel strong and happy, then more power to you. However, even if you eat well and exercise, having a toned stomach is not always guaranteed-perhaps because of your body composition, genetics, or any health problems you may have trouble controlling. Be mindful of that so you don’t put too much emphasis on aesthetics that don’t necessarily directly contribute to your health or strength.

When it comes to shedding pounds and gaining muscle, Skye stresses the importance of eating well. It’s true-following a healthy diet is essential if you want a great midsection, says Paul Sklar, C.S.C.S., the owner of Prescriptive Fitness and ACSM-certified exercise physiologist. Despite any rumors you may have heard, there isn’t just one magic meal that you can use to blast fat, New York-based nutritionist Jessica Cording tells SELF. In contrast, avoiding foods and drinks that are high in sugar, refined carbs, and sodium can help you show your abs more clearly. Yes, even alcohol contributes to this. Cording explains that reducing the consumption of these foods (within reason, of course) can help you lose weight.

He also recommends avoiding packaged foods as much as possible, a recommendation that experts endorse. Packaging and processed foods often contain chemical ingredients, such as artificial sweeteners, which cause bloating and hide an ideal stomach, Beth Warren, R.D.N., of Beth Warren Nutrition and author of Living a Real Life With Real Food, tells SELF. Additionally, high-fructose corn syrup, a similar ingredient to high fructose corn syrup in many packaged foods, has been linked to the increase in visceral fat, or fat that accumulates in the abdomen, SELF is told by Albert Matheny, M.S., R.D., C.S.C.S., of SoHo Strength Lab and Promix Nutrition. Furthermore, these foods are often high in refined carbohydrates as well as excess sodium, both of which are contributing factors to bloating.

In light of that, it’s important to refrain from swinging too far to the other side and undereating. “A lot of people don’t eat enough food,” Skye says. “They think if they eat less or are calorie-restricted, they’ll burn more, but your body will adapt to that, which means it slows down your metabolism. … You’ve got to eat enough food to keep everything going.”

When you don’t consume enough calories, your body goes into “starvation mode,” which allows your body to store the calories you consume rather than burn them, Warren explains. Cording also points out that undereating can make you feel tired, which can make it difficult to stay motivated to work out.

Skye says one of the ways she maintains a toned stomach is by working out her entire body, in addition to eating well. “You can’t spot-reduce,” she explains, noting that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts and weight lifting are both effective in building overall muscle. “A lot of women neglect [weight training] because they have this fear that weights will make them bulky, but it’s actually really good for getting that toned look. Plus it burns fat,” she explains. A smaller amount of abdominal fat makes it easier to see your muscles, Skye says, which is why fat burning is crucial to obtaining a defined abdominal region.

It is a myth, Matheny says, especially when it comes to spotting training. “It’s possible to lose the relative majority of the weight on your stomach, but you can’t just lose fat in one specific area,” he adds.

In addition to Skye, Sklar advises using HIIT programs, noting that you will be most effective if you have a strong cardiovascular base. “During a training session, the best way to tone the stomach is by engaging your abdominal muscles during most if not all resistance-training exercises,” he explains to SELF. “That means every rep and every set, understanding that the abdominal muscles contract during just about any exercise.” As a way to achieve a more toned-looking stomach, Matheny also advises doing big, compound exercises such as squats and deadlifts, which are better at burning calories than exercises that rely on small movements such as crunches.

Several experts say Skye’s advice is certainly sound if you would like more toned abs. However, Cording suggests you shouldn’t stress out if your abs don’t look as defined as you’d like them to be. “Our bodies are all so different,” she explains. “Try focusing on feeling strong, healthy, and well-nourished—that’s what’s important.”

Intermittent Fasting

The habit of eating only during an eight-hour window per day has been ingrained into Skye’s life for many years.

Eat Like a Hunter-Gatherer

In terms of diet, Skye prefers to eat raw, unprocessed foods found in nature, but she does not adhere to strict Paleo principles.

Let the Tummy Talk

According to Skye, she usually bases her food decisions on how she felt after a previous meal.

Treat Time

As Skye put it, she doesn’t like calling anything a ‘cheat’ because of its negative connotation. Two to three times a week, she consumes a ‘treat’ meal. Her favorite indulgences include chips and chocolate.

In the next section, we will discuss her nutrients and supplements that give her a bit more edge in her workouts. So stay tuned to look at what she incorporates!

Emily Skye Nutrition and Supplements

In this section, we will list out some of the supplements that Emily Skye takes in her workout routine to add to her physical fitness. These nutrients and supplements are a great way to build strength and see results. Take a look:

BCAA AMINO

There are many benefits associated with branched-chain amino acids, making them a preferred supplement for a lot of athletes: They enhance endurance, build muscle, and accelerate recovery. According to Skye, she likes hers to have a 2:1:1 ratio.

AMINO & ENERGY DRINK

Keeping her energy up and improving her focus with an amino and energy supplement is also part of Skye’s routine.

Emily Skye

VEGAN PROTEIN

In addition to making protein muffins for quick and easy post-workouts, Skye often makes recipes with vegan protein.

Emily Skye Fitness Interview

Can you share more about yourself? When and how did you discover your passion for fitness (and health)?

I spent many years unhappy with myself, I suffered from depression, anxiety, and self-worth issues. Then, when I was twenty-three years old, I decided I had to do something about it because no one was going to come along and save me. I knew that healthy eating and exercising had an impact on mental health, so I started eating healthy food and exercising a lot. I started to compete in bodybuilding-style competitions but realized it wasn’t for me. I enjoyed having something to work towards but it wasn’t really my thing. I wanted fitness to be a lifestyle and something I could hold on to forever. Fitness changed my life, it made me feel incredible and I loved the way exercising influenced other areas of my life. Working out and healthy eating, made me feel more confident like I could do anything, kind of like a superhero! I felt on top of the world and I’d never felt like that before in my life and I wanted everyone around me to feel the same way. So I’d tell my friends and family to come and train with me, but it wasn’t enough. I just wanted to get out there and share with the world how good it is to feel fit and healthy. At the time, I saw social media as the best way to share my message.

What is your biggest achievement?

Having my daughter Mia of course! Apart from that, I would definitely say being able to overcome depression and self-worth issues. I’m not saying that it’s gone away completely, there are plenty of days where I feel unmotivated or down but now I have the tools to get through it.

What is your secret recipe for motivating yourself to work out?

I know how good it feels when you do the workout. So when I’m being consistent with my training and eating food my body loves, I feel much better. When I don’t feel my best, I try to refresh how was I feeling after the workout and healthy food. Such memories help me to stay motivated!

What are the best 3 pieces of advice you would give to your supporters and the people inspired by you?

  • Work out what it is you want, and realize that you are worthy and capable of achieving it. A lot of times, when people give up, it’s because they don’t feel deserving and don’t believe they can get through the hard work it will take to get there. Of course, there will be hard work, but they can do it!
  • Believe in yourself and anything you set your mind to. Just because you really want it and you’re passionate about something, realize that all the hard work is worth it.
  • Celebrate every success, all the small wins! Otherwise, it can get draining and you’ll feel like you can never get anywhere.

Emily Skye

What are your favorite 3 fitness exercises?

I love including in my workouts hip thrusts, deadlifts, and lunges!

How often do you work out a week? And what is your workout routine/schedule?

I’d say on average 4 times a week for 30 minutes to one and a half hours. I usually do strength training, lifting as much as I can with good form. I don’t do a lot of cardio, the only cardio I do is high-intensity kettlebell swings or snatches with weights!

What does your diet look like? Do you commit to a special diet? (e.g. vegetarian, vegan, low carb, low fat)

It’s always about what my gut will tolerate. At the moment I’m working through fixing that. I like to eat basics, unprocessed and organic food wherever and whenever it’s possible. I like the hunter-gather diet, organic meats, fish nuts, and seeds. I don’t have much in the way of bread or pasta just because it doesn’t agree with my tummy. My diet is all about how I feel when and after eating the food!

Do you have cheat days? If yes, what is your most favorite cheat meal?

I call them treat days, I don’t like the negative connotation attached to the word cheat because you’re not cheating yourself! I think we all deserve to have something that we enjoy and not worry about what it’s doing to our bodies. I like intuitive eating and allowing myself one or two treat meals a week. It does depend on what’s happening though. If I have a photoshoot or something coming up, I’m a bit more strict with myself because I know I have a goal to achieve, but generally, I allow a couple of treats. My favorite ‘treat’ foods are chips and chocolate!

What supplements do you use? And what is your favorite Women’s Best product?

My favorite supplements are the Women’s best BCAA Amino, the Amino and Energy drink, and the Protein Bars! I also love the Vanilla Vegan Protein! I cook with protein a lot and when I need a quick snack after training, I prepare great protein muffins in advance!

Many people find it hard to eat healthy on a daily basis. How do you make sure to keep a healthy diet in your everyday life?

If I’m trying to be healthy, so I don’t have any junk food in the house. If I was to give someone advice, it would be not to have any junk in the house and only shop for good healthy fresh food and make sure you’re preparing your meals for the week. Cooking healthy meals using fresh and organic ingredients is the key to feeling good.

What has inspired you towards social media? When/how did you start it? And what is your favorite platform (Instagram / YouTube / Facebook etc…)

I was inspired to use these social media platforms to reach more people and share my message. I thought it was a great way to build my presence online and provide good quality fitness content which is easily accessible.  My followers could get familiar with my videos and get fit! I originally started on Instagram but saw that Facebook was really taking off. I was sharing my videos from Instagram to Facebook without really thinking about it and then one day I realized one of my videos went viral with something ridiculous like 60 million views and I grew a million Facebook likes in a week! Social media is always evolving so I make sure I post on all platforms, but I enjoy using Instagram the most.

Besides being a very sports enthusiastic person, you don’t restrain from sharing pictures of your after-pregnancy body. Do you think body positivity is an unattended topic in the fitness community?

I think it has become more popular now, and it’s a great thing to show to young people who get exposed to perfect images of celebrities all the time. A lot of what young kids are seeing online these days are these perfect images so I think it’s great that so many people are jumping on board and sharing the less perfect pictures of themselves.

Emily Skye

Mia is so adorable! Do you feel she is growing up with a passion for fitness?

I definitely get her involved and she sees me exercising and moving a lot. She’s learning about healthy food too because she sees us eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies. So hopefully that influences her and in the future, she will also enjoy eating healthy and exercising regularly!

What are your future goals?

My future goals are to continue what I’m doing now, reaching lots of people and having a positive impact on them. I want them to know that they are worthy of investing time into getting fit and healthy, that it’s not a selfish thing to put yourself and your health first.
